    Grid section attributes not visible

    Hello,

    While comparing the documentation for grids, I noticed several properties (such as AlternatingRowColors, GridLineColor, ViewMode, WordWrap) do not appear in the grid section attributes.
    WordWrap should actually appear in the grid column attributes. Is there a reason why these properties are not available in the section attributes?

    The same can be said in reverse. Why are some attributes (such as [grid] background color) available in the attributes section but not available (or described as available) in the documentation.

    Also, why does changing the background color overwrite the grid background color and vice-versa?

    Thanks,
    Cory

    Hi Cory,

    Properties/Attributes may vary between standard Sections/Controls and the UI Framework because defaults have been set for standard components to reduce complexity, because they are regarded as unnecessary or because they are currently not 'exposed', but may be in the future.

    Certain standard components are made up of more than one class - a Grid Section is both a Section and the Grid contained within it, so the Section Attributes differentiate between the background color of the Section itself and the background color of the Grid.

    Can you give me more details on the colors being overwritten and I will check that?

    Thanks,

    Yvonne

    Hi Yvonne,
    Thanks for the response.

    It's just confusing when you see something described in one place but not visible/available when you go to access/use it.

    Regarding the colors, take any populated grid and open the section attributes.
    Set the background color to some bright color. The section background and the alternating row colors should be changed to your selected color.
    Set the grid background color to some other bright color. The alternating row colors should be changed to the selected color (the section background appears unchanged).
    Set the background color to some other color. The background color should be changed and the alternating rows changed as well even though the grid background color is still set to another color.
